City Race

Statement from the Club.

The 2020 London City Race is cancelled.

Given the current situation in England with Covid-19, and the impact of ongoing restrictions when applied to an urban environment, we have reluctantly concluded we are sorry we must cancel the London City Race weekend for this year. 

We are making provisional arrangements for a ‘forest’ event to be held on Holmwood Common, near Dorking on Sunday 13th September as a substitute, should regulations allow. Some of the courses are planned!

Please watch for updates on this website as the date approaches.

2021

Preparations are already underway for a relaunch of the London City Weekend in 2021.

Provisional details:

Friday 3rd September – a prologue race, as yet undecided.

Saturday 4th September

Classic distance urban event in Westminster and the City of London, with Start and Finish close to the Aldwych.

This will make the most of the complex alleys and courts of the Temple.

 Sunday 5th September

A middle distance race in the new development at King’s Cross. This is also fairly described as “complex”. Organised by our friends at London Orienteering Klubb.
